I have loved Uncle Douglas all my life. He loved all his family,
his dogs, he really loved the Lord. He loved Ann, and she loved him. Ann was a good wife. Patient, kind & a very good cook. Oh l wish l could see the look on his face when he saw his family that had gone on ahead of him, especially Donna Lynn. We finally got to meet Ray, his brother from another mother. They had a friendship that we all would hope to have in our lifetime. Seems everyone who knew him, loved him. I know l will surely miss him.

Uncle Douglas was my favorite Uncle, for as long as I can remember he would say that it was only because my Uncle John had passed. He had a unique humor, very knowledgeable and he had a true soft side that he would let you see when you needed it. He truly loved his family and friends and he loved life. He will be greatly missed.
